Kontrabida (Pricetagg ft. CLR) Review

Kung nag hahanap ka ng mga bagong tugtugin mula sa Rap Genre, maliban sa O.C. Dawgs’ Pauwi Na Ako o sa mga kanta ni Shanti Dope, may bago akong irerecommenda sa inyo.

Kung taga masid ka na ng Fliptop o ang kamakailan na Sunugan marahil hindi na bago sa iyo ang rapper na si Pricetagg.

Mula sa kanya ang bagong tugtug na gusto ko sanang ibahagi sa inyo. Kasama si CLR (pronounce as SEELAR), astig ung bago nilang kanta na Kontrabida mula sa album na Barcode. Siguro hindi lang din ako ang nahumaling sa kanta matapos mapakinggan ito dahil na feature na rin ito sa Wish 107.5 Bus ay meron narin mahigit isang milyong views sa ngayon.

Tamang tama ang pag release nito ni Pricetagg dahil narin sa napapanahong nyang hype mula sa laban nila ni Makagago. Actually kaya ko lang din na discover ang kanta dahil dun kahit na na subaybayan ko rin ang career ni Pricetagg sa Fliptop, hindi ako aware na malupit din pala sya sa musika.

Pauwi Nako (O.C. Dawgs)

Artist: O.C. Dawgs / Exbattalion
Words and Music: O.C Dawgs
Release: 2018
Key: Gb
Details: Salamat sa Makagago vs Pricetagg na discover ko tong kanta na ito. Bandwagon nga kung bandwagon pero siguro kayo rin, bago nyo lang narinig itong kantang ito kahit na ang totoo nung 2018 pa ito na release ng O.C Dawgs (ganon din siguro ang Wish). Ano ang kinalaman ni Makagago? Ito ay matapos na idiss sa laban si Skusta Clee na may tulo, at napanood ko din ang video ni Zenaib patungkol kay Skusta Clee. Balik tayo sa kanta, maganda ang kanta ang mabilis kang mahuhumaling kahit na salit mo palang napakinggan. At tulad din sa mga kanta ng EX-B noon, nadala ni Skusta Clee ang buong kanta, bagay na bagay sa boses nya.

Actually madali lang tugtugin ang kanta gamit ang acoustic guitar dahil meron lang itong limang chords sa buong kanta. Medyo tricky nga lang ang mabilis na bagsak ng Db sa pag tapos ng bawat bar ganon pa man, habang pinakikingan mo ng ilang ulit, at dahil paulit ulit lang din naman ang chords sa buong kanta mabilis mo itong makakabisa. Isa pang challenging sa pag tugtug nito ay ang pagkakaron ng key sa Gb. Expect mo na nakakangalay ang pag tugtug dito. lalu pat ang buong kanta ay lagpas limang minuto. Ganon pa man practice lang ang kailangan. Hindi ko narin nilagyan ng chords ang mga verses dahil mas madali kung kakaibisaduhin ang takbo ng chords at makikita mo na ang lahat ay kusang babagsak sa beat ng kanta. Hindi mo na kailangan isipin kung ano ang chord sa specific na lyrics dahil susunod naman ang iyong kamay sa tugtug. Mas mabisa ito lalu na sa mga rap, ganto ko rin sinipara ang Nadarang dati. So tara. Continue reading Pauwi Nako (O.C. Dawgs)

Kahit Ayaw Mo Na (This Band)

Artist: This Band
Words and Music: Euwie Von Ceballos Loria
Album:
Release: 2018
Tempo: 125
Key: D
Details: Eto ay isa sa mga soundtrack mula sa pelikula ng 2018 na pinamagatang “Kahit Ayaw Mo Na”. Actually matagal ng na release ang kanta na ito subalit naka kuha lamang ito ng malakihang tagapakinig ng nagamit sa pelikula sa ilalim ng Viva Film label. Maganda ang rendition ng kanta. Ito iyong mga uri ng musika na agad mong ma appreciate at maLSS sa una palang na mapakingan. Siguro dahil ang melody ay tila may pagkakatulad sa ibang kanta. Una kong narinig ito sa kapatid ko habang nag aaral sya sa pag tugtug ng drums. Ang akala ko nga Christian song ang kinakanta nya mula sa lyrics na “tatakbo… sisingaw ang pangalan mo” kung hindi ako nagkakamali, meron Christian song na ganto. Pangalawa may pagkakahawig din ito sa Love Story ni Taylor Swift, ewan ko ba pero lagi kong minamali ang lyrics pag dun na sa “Bridge” at ang kinakata ko ay ang lyrics sa chorus ng love story. Pero syempre magkaiba iyon, siguro sa akin lang, tama sa akin lang. Continue reading Kahit Ayaw Mo Na (This Band)

Calvary (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong Worship
Words and Music: Joel Houston, Jonas Myrin
Album: No Other Name
Release: 2014
Tempo: 73 beats per minute
Key: G
Details: Calvary is the central theme of God’s redemptive plan started back from the Genesis to Revelation. This is for him to show His love that people can understand. Being God and we as human, it is difficult for us to understand His presence and the best way to explain it is through Calvary.

We don’t like Calvary. It is hard for us to understand. Even the exile from Egypt also questioned the concept of Calvary when they started to complain. Yes it is difficult for us to understand even today in times that we want everything to be easy.

So what God did was sending Jesus Christ so the Calvary that we should be the one to experience, has been carry over to His Son as part of our salvation.

Let’s praise Jesus Christ for what we did. Continue reading Calvary (Hillsong)

Album: No Other Name
Release: 2014
Tempo: 79 beats per minute
Key: D
Details: Some people felt that God is not existing anymore. As He is deaf and He is not able to listen to our prayer. Actually is it not the God doesn’t listen but us. We like to talk and talk and we don’t have time in listening to His gentle voice.

Yes He speaks to us in the depth of our heart just like this song tells. From that depth we can listen to his voice and know what He wants for us and not what we want for him to do on our life. He know better than us and He will do better than we can ever imagine.  Continue reading Depths (Hillsong)

From this I Believe that it doesn’t matter if we believe in God because He believe on us. And He will find a way for us to believe even in the most unexpected situation. Continue reading Broken Vessels (Hillsong)

Details: Taken from Matthew 24:35,  “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” From this verse we can assure that what God said will remain not only in this world or even in heaven but for eternity.

So when God said that He will rescue us, yes He will. When God promised that He will save us through Jesus Christ, yes He will. We just only need to be still and have faith on him. Because if there is one thing in this world that He is not going to interfere that is with our free will. So let’s make sure that our will is the will of God for us.
